So they claim. Now we shall see what happens. 29 people signed up, 5 people completed an offer. Hence I completed my requirements.
Stay tuned. I’ll be posting updates as they happen.
I’ve got Gmail invites still. Priority goes to Mozilla community members. If I’ve seen your name around, you’ve got a higher chance. So post a comment here with your name and email address (no anti-spam garbage, or I’m skipping it, the blog will do some minor obscuring).
Even higher priority goes for those who join Freeipods.com through my referal link, and complete an offer. 😉 Still trying to find out if it’s the real deal. Try AOL for 30 days (hey, they did give Mozilla Foundation $2 million). There several other easy little offers. Then cancel during the free trial to avoid having to pay for the service if you don’t like it. Use the same address to signup, so I know who you are.
So if you don’t have a Gmail address yet, this is an easy way to get it. Priority offer is as follows:
Do both and increase your chances.
If I get more invites, I’ll just attack this list for a little bit, before making a new post with a new contest for gmail invites.
So go ahead and get busy.
Well, I completed my offer, and according to wired.com, I’m just 5 friends away from having an iPod. So if you want a free iPod (and help me get one). I think you should read the next line:
I first mentioned this last week.
It’s apparently legitimate according to wired.com.
So want a free iPod (and use me as a referrer helping your humble reporter get one of his own?
Then just signup. There are several offers that look easy to complete, such as signing up for a credit card, or trying AOL. Just signup and cancel in a few days. No bills, no mess, no fuss. If you like the product/service. Perhaps keep it. Signing up for AOL takes a few minutes and doesn’t even require a credit card. Signing up for a credit card is something people do daily for a free t-shirt, so nothing new there.
Then get 5 of your friends to signup for you…. and you’ve apparently earned a free iPod according to wired.com
